VERY GARLICKY Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles


Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles


1.5 lbs cucumbers (I used cocktail cucumbers - but you can try any variety you find available) - cut into spears or 1/4" chips.

8 garlic cloves - 4 quartered, 4 left whole

8-16 sprigs fresh dill

2 TBS coriander SEEDS (not ground)

3 TBS sea (or Kosher) salt

2 TBS sugar

1 1/3 cups white vinegar


Jars for containing the pickles


NOTE - these are very garlicky!!!  If you don't LOVE garlic - cut the garlic back a lot.

In a sauce pan - heat the vinegar & add the salt, sugar & coriander seeds.  Heat, stirring, just until both the sugar & salt dissolve.  Try to get this done before the water gets hot.  If it gets very hot - let it cool before pouring over your cucumbers.

Put your cucumbers in the pickling container (a mason jar, old pickle jar - or other container with a water-tight lid) - with the garlic & the fresh dill.  Pour the vinegar mix over the cucumbers.  Add water to fill the container to the top.  Seal the container & chill in the fridge for at least 24 hours.  Try one.  ENJOY!

These should last in your fridge (in a sealed container) for up to one month.
